We were working on a very quick turn around job and were desperate for a quality VO before sending to our client. David Byrd went above and beyond to help us bring the project to life under insane time restraints, and with limited guidance. He helped make what could have been a stressful situation much easier, and with a professional and caring demeanor. I would recommend David to anyone in need of a high quality and powerful voice over artist. I intend to work with him much more in the future, and look forward to the opportunity.Overcoast

David was so great to work with, and international distance didn't cause even the slightest issue. He was extremely fast, delivered the lines exactly as we'd described, and was incredibly friendly and enthusiastic about the project. Definitely wouldn't have any reservations asking him to bring more characters to life for us in future games! Thanks so much David!Western Press Video Game

David was quick, efficient and easy to work with for our radio commercial. He knew exactly what kind of voice we wanted and even gave us two choices with different inflections. I highly recommend his work and may use him again for future projects.Bridger Steel
David, you are the master! Thank you for turning that out so quickly and flawlessly. You are truly a professional.Immix Productions
I was watching a commercial during a Sunday football game when I heard this amazing narration in the background of the ad. I googled the commercial name and found out that this narrator was David Byrd. I sent him an email with my idea and script and within a day or two, he sent back the finished voiceover. It was better than I ever could have expected and made my project what it is. One of the best voiceover artists I've heard. 100% will use him for his services again in the future.Josh Pohlman, Independent Producer
